The Senate

Like the House of Representatives, the Senate meets to discuss several hundreds of bills that are presented regarding illegal immigration, such as those that may secure borders and provide forms of relief so that immigrants can remain in the United States and eventually obtain legal status. Additionally, it can introduce private bills that would otherwise receive no solution under immigration laws in effect.

The Senate Judiciary Committee and it’s Immigration Subcommittee hold hearings to review a variety of immigration issues, and there are often webcasts of these hearings broadcasted online.

Earlier in the spring of 2013, discussion and revisions began on Comprehensive Reform legislation, which was approved later on in the year at the end of June of 2013. Our site provides the most up to date information on Comprehensive Reform that can affect millions of immigrants in the United States.
